Dark Horses Triumph

The Dark Horses finished the season on a high gaining 20 points in the last four games, 4 points each from Holt and Trowbridge Angels and the full six points from Spencer Melksham Smoothies and Chippenham Town Dragons.

I would like to express my congratulations to my team and say how proud of them I am as we have finished top of the Third Division of Norwest League (sharing 49 points with Spencer Melksham Smoothies but we achieved a bigger shot difference which has given us the top spot!!)

Well done Alison Cross, Lynne Williams, Debbie Greenwood, Sue Reeves, Liz Soellner, Jan Hodgetts, Lynn Hicks, Rachel Whiting, Margaret Cave and Ingrid Thorogood.

Alpha Ladies Final report for 2017

Well done Alpha Ladies who have finished well up the league table. It was difficult for us at first with Sue Ochyra still very much in mind but the team settled down very well and newcomers Denise Howard and Julie Romijn also did very well.

Thank you to Bev for her assistance throughout the season, all in all I think we can feel very proud of ourselves.
